I'll jump in and say the EGR delete or the OEM oil cooler. If your still running the gold coolant do the cooler first and I'd recommend the BPD air to oil cooler.

Thanks! Yeah I'm definitely still running the gold coolant, had to top it off today as a matter of fact. I will look into the pricing on the BPD Air to Oil Cooler and start budgeting appropriately to save and get that done. Any recommendations as to whether to get the standard duty or heavy duty one? Not really wanting to get it deleted per say, just bulletproofing in the long run.

Mine has the heavy duty one with the BPD filter on it but, with a price tag over $2000 you may want to look at other options. They have a standard duty with the OEM filter for just over $1700. If you don't delete the EGR you may want to look into the BPD EGR.

Yeah, Pricing it out for the heavy duty one it comes out over $2,700 with the cold weather package and everything else added but it says the heavy duty one is also better for hot climates. Living in the Texas Panhandle it gets both extremely hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter here so while the cost for the heavy duty one is much greater, I almost wonder if that would be my best choice in the long run. Thoughts?

Also I will def look into the BPD EGR, to me the most important thing is longevity, I'd rather spend a bit more preemptive preventative money as I have it than my truck have a cataclysmic meltdown later that I truly won't be able to afford.

You're right on track! You'll spend the money one way or another. Better to feed the beast on your schedule as opposed to when the 6.0 gods decide.

As for the cooler, I haven't been in the market for a while but $2700 seems high. Is that install cost as well? Seems like they were just over 2K last time I looked. However I think you can do the HD cooler without doing the filter relocate and save some cash.

My thoughts exactly, we all know the 6.0 gods can be very inconvenient and finicky lol.

So For roughly $2800 it included the HD Air to Oil Cooler, EGR Cooler, and Cold Weather Package, no install because its straight from BPDs website, its the full HD upgrade. So I guess that would cover all the initial equipment I would really need to do right away correct?

Ok, I'm not sure what the cold weather package is. It sounds gimmicky to me.

Looks like it sets oil temp to 180 before it circulated through the cooler when it’s cold. Basically like a thermostat for your oil cooler. Wondering if it’s worth it seeing as how our lows at night are anywhere from the teens to well below zero?
